Journal of Catholic Legal Studies Publishes Symposium on State-Sponsored Religious Displays

The Journal of Catholic Legal Studies has published papers from a symposium on state-sponsored religious displays that the St. John’s Center for Law and Religion co-sponsored with the Libera Universita Maria SS Assunta (LUMSA) in Rome last year.  The papers compare the treatment of such displays in the United States and Europe.  Contributors include Silvio Ferrari  of the University of Milan (“State-Supported Display of Religious Symbols In The Public Space”); Thomas Berg of the University of St. Thomas (“Can State-Sponsored Religious Symbols Promote Religious Liberty?”); Monica Lugato of LUMSA (“The ‘Margin of Appreciation’ and Freedom of Religion: Between Treaty Interpretation And Subsidiarity”); and Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain of the US Court of Appeals (“Religious Symbols and the Law”). There’s also an introduction by Professor Mark Movsesian, the Center’s Director. You can download the articles here.
